Nobody wants to hit a deer while driving a car, and the reality is that avoiding a collision with the first deer often leads to a collision with a second deer. Research says that 70% of all deer-related car crashes occur because a driver slowed to avoid the deer they saw, then sped up again, failing to see the ones right behind them, resulting in a crash. Female deer often have one or two baby fawns -- some as big as an adult deer -- running right behind them. When you see one deer, slow down and drive at a crawl while scanning the road sides until you know the coast is clear.
